than four hundred $50,000 and individuals making more than $400,000. joe biden is meeting with house democrats. the vast majority of them seem ready to support the measure making its way through the house. with the new congress coming in on thursday, if the measure is not passed within that time, it will have to be completely reintroduced in the new congress. republicans are said to me in about five minutes to continue a discussion about whether or not to support the measure that was sent to them by the senate in the early morning hours. some tweaks coming from reporters in the halls of the capital. the political wire says democratic leaders say they will not take up a bill if it is amended by house republicans. "we are done. " a retweet from joe biden says "i think we are going to be fine." a number of different views and issues depending on which party is talking about the fiscal clef. we are going to, of course, keep you updated on the c-span network. in the meantime, take a look back at what senator dick durbin had to say earlier today from the senate floor. >> it was after 2:00

and senator biden had been newly selected as his running mate. he said i thi i am reasonably smart. it took me like six months to figure out how to be a presidential candidate, how to deal with the stop light, how to deal with the national politics. she may be the smartest politician ever and she may be able to come out of alaska to handle all of this. but i will give her three weeks. three weeks to the day, she did her interview with katie couric, which effectively ended it for her. [laughter] i thought that they might make a conservative choice, someone who had at least a taste of the national stage or, which was more of a consensus in the political committee, that he might take rob portman from ohio because ohio is so important. portman was a guy who is a center-right conservative, who might be more broad. i think barack was surprised by the jurors. what do you think for men could have changed -- surprised by the choice. >> do you think portman could have changed the outcome? >> i don't know. there is a lot of reflection on that in romneyland. >> wh you were talking about the ad

mcconnell has been in negotiations with vice president joe biden. we know they spoke at least twice over night. the last conversation we are aware of was about 6:45 this morning. we don't know the status of those talks. we don't know whether they are its senate offers back or fourth. leaders of both parties have said little this morning. senate majority agree -- leader harry reid came to the floor and did not have much of an update. if there is is going to be a deal today, it will be between mr. mcconnell and mr. biden. there is little in the way of ongoing conversation between mr. reed and mr. mcca mcconnell. >> what about the mechanics of any deal if there is an agreement at least in the senate -- how quickly can come to the floor and how likely is it we can see action on the house floor later today or tonight or tomorrow? >> it becomes tricky. we know what the allies of any deal would be. they have been bandied around for about two years. translating the outline of the deal in legislative language is difficult and the staff would have to work in overdrive to get that done and they hav

partner joe biden. he has been kept on the sidelines during negotiations. some republicans think his absence is a sign that the president is not serious about closing a deal. mitch mcconnell is no longer the top republican in washington. it is easy to forget that when he struck a deal to extend the bush tax cuts, boehner had won the house a month before but was not wielding the gavel. finally, mitch mcconnell has stayed on offense. on the senate floor on friday he argued the democrats poisoned the well by declaring boehner's plan b dead on arrival. >> and he is up for reelection in 2014. by all polling, it looks like it will be a lot tougher. he also has a colleague in rand paul, who is a tea partier. you put all those factors together and it could be that mcconnell may have to step up because that is what you have to do to get some sort of deal at the moment, we have not seen that happen. host: from mark williams, what will be specifically affected in the economy if we go over the cliff? guest: instead of giving you my own numbers, let me use the congressional budget office estimate
